-elect president barack obama. millions of womens votes who helped us elect a record number of women to the united states. as you look forward, understand that you are looking into the future. the future of empowerment of women in america. you saw some of these faces yesterday. among the new members elect. i said then that they were part of the most diverse caucus in the history of the world, the first time the body would have a power with a majority of women and minorities as its strength and we're very, very proud of that. said yesterday we could not have the majority, but we have the gavel. excuse me. we don't have the gavel. we don't have -- we have our own gavel. we have something more important. we have unity. we do not have the gavel. we do not have the -- majority. but we have unity. i think our caucus this morning demonstrated that very clearly. so, i come here with my sisters when i came to congress 25 years ago, there were about 23 members of congress who were women. out of 435. just think of that. 11, 12 democrats, 11 republicans. something like that. today, we have over 60 house democ
obama's foreign policies ahead. he will have to deal with an entirely new team. he came in and put hillary clinton as secretary of state, inherited bob gates and inherited gen. petraeus and put him afghanistan and cia and now he has to fill those positions and see who can help him deal with these challenges. >> bob, as one who has more than a passing acquaintance with scandals, where do you think the so-called libya scandal is now? >> i think there are serious unanswered questions but the suggestion they should have watergate style, independent special committees to investigate this, i don't see that yet because the question seems to be what did susan rice know and when did she know it? which falls not very high on the scale of do we really need to get to the bottom of this? i kind of disagree with chuck. i think we will find out what happened and i think we should. and you never know what this is going to show. but the real issue is libyan policy. you know, what are we going to do with this country that -- we don't know what the future is. and a light footprint might be the answer
. and it was litigated on the tax issue and on the tax issue obama won the argument. moving into the fiscal cliff situation, he has a strong hand. the public is with him. >> bill: right. 49% say states should legally recognize same-sex marriages. >> of course, you saw big wins in maryland, defeated in minnesota. so moving forward -- maine -- so moving forward. that's the first time that you saw -- put it to a popular vote. those issues go forward. the numbers nationally are still divided but again i think a pivotal moment and those numbers again with the demographics will only grow and grow and grow. >> bill: on immigration reform, which i found interesting, of course, the difference is president obama had a comprehensive immigration reform package. mitt romney said people should self-deport. 65% of americans in this -- a week ago today said most illegal immigrants should be offered a chance to apply for citizenship. not sent back to mexico or wherever. >> you saw right after the election, prominent republicans come out and say okay, w
not by the opponent but by the super pac. we had $100 million spent by the president in nine states, $100 million on the air which is more than what mccain spent in its entirety. >> i think house races had an impact because barack obama, sherrod brown, governors, they had some definition. so that outside spending is a little less nefarious. it's still tough to deal with. but if you're not known it's going to be an imact about this. there's a term about politics which is the amount of television you buy. it means the average viewer sees the ad 10 times. in this election the republicans super pacs were at 9,000 or 10,000 points. i spent a lot of nights in hotel rooms there. and you turn on to tell vision. it was wall to wall political act and in many of those markets you see two or three ads. there is strong differences on this but we had one individual, one spend 100 million on the presidential direction. one person will try. there will be soul searching on the republican side. it had all this money. i don't think it's going away. but this is a big question in 2016, the democrats and republicans w

kerry, eyeing the secretary of state position may be asked to replace panetta. adding to the stakes of musical chairs, general allen's confirmation hearing to lead nato has been put on hold. during the campaign president obama called for nation building at home in his second term. he'll need to start by rebuilding his own team. john heilemann, you were a guest on the very first program of this show, there is a lot happening inside the president's inner leadership circle. how much of a problem do you think this is for him? >> first of all, let's not -- let's terry for a moment on -- i have been doing some math, 8,760, that's the number for today, 8,760 hours. >> wow. >> since alex wagner took over that chair and ever since -- >> subjected america to this program. >> and ever since then, root beer has flowed from the water fountains here at 30 rock and there has not been a cloudy day. >> and recess has been extended by 15 minutes. you're welcome america and 30 rocks. >> all lollipops and sunshine. congratulation on 8,760 hours in that seat and good luck on the next 8,760 hours. >> tha

obama with 55% of the vote. 184 women ran for congressional office this year, and 40% of the u.s. population now has at least one woman senator. there is no longer an all-male state legislature anywhere in the country. nowhere. new hampshire, which is also my home away from home, now has an all women congressional delegation. and a woman governor, as well as a female statehouse and state senate leader. they are not both democrats, that's ok. they are still women. we are moving in the right direction. and this is my favorite, on the 113th congress, gavels in in january, it will be an all-time high of 20 women senators and 81 women in the house of representatives. [applause] >> this is awesome. now, that is particularly gratifying given that we came off -- i remember being on a -- in a similar discussion just two years ago just lamenting and agonizing that we had dropped the number of women in congress for the first time since 1982 after the 2010 elections. some of us thought, oh, my gosh, how did we lose the momentum? how are we going to get it back? it's so critical. there was

, where a pretty fiery president obama ready to take off the gloves, if the republicans want to fight. the president clearly stating two key demands during his first news conference, ever since winning re-election. the first on taxes and the fiscal cliff. >> but what i'm not going to do is to extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% that we can't afford, and according to economists, will have the least positive impact on our economy. >> the president also making clear that he has susan rice's back. that's his ambassador, the embattled u.s. ambassador to the united nations. initially she said that that september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi began as a spontaneous protest against an anti-islam film. well, now two top-ranking republicans are vowing to block her nomination if, in fact, she is picked to be the next secretary of state. that had the president very anger. here's what he said. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> white house correspondent dan lothian is in washington, d.c., this morning. le

. nearly 30% of rhode island's residents were directly affected by this storm. president obama granted governor chafee's request for a federal disaster declaration in four of ourte's five counties. more than 130 rhode islanders lost power, and eight cities and towns were forced to implement evacuations. the whole state will be affected by the as of yet unknown millions in damage and lost business. but rhode island is resilient. some businesses hit hard by sandy and the subsequent nor'easter have already reopened. others are working hard to reopen soon. here we can see the atlantic avenue from the sky, and the owners of paddy's beach restaurant here as well as their neighbors all along the beach are determined to reopen for the summer tourist season. i remember walking through this little notch here with the owners of paddy's and looking at this scene of devastation beside and the owner saying that's not so bad. we can rebuild. we'll be back on our feet in no time. and they already had friends and volunteers on site with hammers and shovels and saws cleaning up and getting things put ri
